March is Youth Art Month and Poplin students have recently had artwork showcased in two art shows in Union County. Jazmine Carol, a fourth grader in Sarah Mintz’s class, and Mya McCord, a first grader in Wendy Loken’s class, both had artwork featured in the UCPS Superintendent Art Show held annually at South Piedmont Community College.

Also during this month, nineteen Poplin students had artwork on display at the Indian Trail Cultural Arts Center. A reception was held for students, families, and teachers on Friday, March 6 at the Indian Trail Cultural Center. Poplin’s Art Teacher, Shannon Helms, said she was glad Poplin students were able to participate in both events. Helms said, “Events like this, along with March being Youth Art Month, help to teach the value of art and art education for all students.”
